Diesel engine technology has been advancing swiftly and at institutions of learning, the rapid pace has made it difficult for automotive students to stay abreast of new technologies. To address this shortcoming, Isuzu Malaysia has contributed a unit of its ELF NPR truck to the DRB-HICOM University in Pekan, Pahang.
The vehicle has one of the latest commonrail diesel engines which will allow the students to have a greater understanding of modern engines and how the advanced technologies provide fuel savings, durability and reliability.
With this greater insight and comprehension on modern engine design and technology, the graduates will be more knowledgeable and have a higher level of competence when they enter the aftersales sector.
“The contribution will provide students a greater opportunity to understand Isuzu’s latest engine technology which will, in turn, be impactful for the automotive aftersales sector in the long run,” said Mikio Tsukui, Chief Operating Officer of Isuzu Malaysia. Mr. Tsukui believes that the contribution will further enhance students’ academic experience at the university.
